An observation.

Gatorade Rain tastes like band aids.

Lime Rain is good and tastes nothing like any band aid I ever had, used or fresh.

I'm trying to imagine what a band aid tastes like.

We all have our preferences. Any band aid tasting experts (or Moms) care to comment?
Sorry no personal experiences.
When I'm riding just about any drinkable liquid will do.

I guess what comes to mind is whether it is a NEW band aid, or one that has "lived" a little.

Rain is my favorite Gatorade and I haven't tasted any band aids lately

Oh, I've tasted quite a few band aids in my life.

Doesn't anyone else think that Rain has a chemical taste to it? Or is it just interacting with my fillings?

The only time I've tasted it was when I was very dehydrated and I just chugged it down. Don't remember the taste.

The nice thing about band-aids is that the flavor lasts much longer than chewing gum. You can chew, chew, chew for hours of pleasure.

One of my favorite Scotch whiskeys is Laphroaig. When you pull out the cork cap, it smells like adhesive bandages. Always the sign of a good Islay single malt!
